The fair will highlight the eight Dimensions of Wellness: physical, emotional, financial, social, spiritual, environmental, intellectual, and occupational, ensuring a holistic approach to well-being as the community heads into the winter and holiday seasons. “It is really important to take care of ourselves,” stated Karen Burcroff, Project Director of the Seneca County Substance Abuse Coalition. This event, aiming to educate on available local services and resources, anticipates bringing together community members and service providers.

Event-goers will have access to an array of free services, including flu shots, Narcan with training, prescription drug disposal, and health screenings. The event promises activities for all ages, such as Safe Child IDs for kids, car seat checks, and wellness demonstrations like Zumba and yoga. The “Taste of Soul” food truck will cater to those seeking dinner options, and attendees can participate in a raffle with prizes sponsored by United Health Care and other vendors.
